How do I check who blocked me on WhatsApp?
Facebook-owned WhatsApp is found in almost every smartphone on this planet. To assess the popularity of WhatsApp, just give someone a brand new smartphone and see what the first application the person will install.
It is no wonder that when such a number of people use the service, there are precedents of blocking, not all people are eager to communicate with specific users. There can be countless reasons for blocking, the main ones are listed below.
Reasons why People Block other people on WhatsApp
- Personal dislike;
- Marketing newsletters;
- Inappropriate commercial offers;
- The requirement of a company or other structure that forces to block and restrict communication;
WhatsApp itself hides from you the fact of a possible block by another user, considering this information confidential, but there are several ways that with 99.99% will allow you to identify the person who blocked you, we will analyze them all.
Steps to check for possible blocking:
1-Open WhatsApp on your device and go to the "Contacts" section. In Android, the "Contacts" section will be located in the upper-right corner of the screen, in iOS, the "Contacts" icon is located at the bottom of the screen in the center.
2-Find the suspect who, as you assume, blocked you.
3-Check the status and profile photo. If they are not available to you, then there are good reasons to believe that the user has blocked you. Although there is a possibility that the suspect could refuse to show this information through the privacy section of the WhatsApp account.
4-Check the timestamp of the user's “last visit". If it is not available to you, then this is an additional alarm bell. But not 100% proof! Because again, the user could refuse to show information about the time of the " last visit”
By the way, you should also check your privacy settings, if you refused to show information about the last visit, then you will not be able to see it from other users either.
5-Send a message to the user. If you see one tick next to the sent message for a long period of time, then this is a significant confirmation of the block. If the second check mark appears, then you have not been blocked by this user.
6 – To make sure exactly, try calling the user. If the call immediately ends or there are infinitely long beeps, then this is another ball in favor of confirming the lock.
7-Create a joint group with the suspect. If you invite him to the group, but he is strongly not invited, then this is the last confirmation that we needed. This user has definitely blocked you
